What size crate for a Beagle?

Looking for a right crate for your beagle? Then you are on the right track because getting the right crate for your beagles and crate training them has a lot of benefits. In fact when done right, crates can be equated by your beagles to their safe place like a personal bedroom to a human. It can be a place they go to when they are feeling anxious instead of running away to hide elsewhere which could pose its danger if the place is not dog proof. Also, it can be a place your beagle can enjoy if you need to do other things and cannot leave your beagle unattended.

One of the things you need to put in mind when buying a crate is that your beagle needs to feel at home in it. As such, in this case, the size of the crate matters. It should be able to not just accommodate the size of your beagle but it should be able to move comfortably in it and not feel constricted. Beagles can grow as much as 15-inches in height although there are also that of a smaller variety that could only be around 13-inches. Whatever the measurement of your beagle, the crate should be high enough for your beagle to sit and stand without constraints. It should be able to roll over as it pleases and even stretch when needed. Ideally, considering the size of an adult beagle, the best crate dimension should be 30 x 19 x 21 inches. Crates should not be too big that your beagle would decide to live on only one side and consider the other side a place for potty.

There are instances when furparents would want a big enough crate to accommodate a growing beagle pup so they won’t end up buying another crate in a few months or so.  This is also possible but you should ensure that the crate has an adjustable divider that you could modify as your beagle increases in size. In that way, you could successfully provide the right crate training for your beagle.

When you choose to get your beagle a crate, then you’d want to choose the best and the most comfortable crate for it. You’d also want one that is sturdy enough to withstand the energy of your beagle so that it could last. Choose from heavy-duty metal to durable plastic crates. You could also pick one that with dual purpose and could be carried in your car for long travels and vacations. Looking for better ways to ensure the comfort of your beagle inside a crate? Then you may want to equip your crate with reinforced seaming and waterproof materials. There are also paddings that could be bought separately if you want your beagle to have a good sleep at night. You’ll find that nowadays, there are so many different crates available in the market that would suit your beagle’s needs and preferences.
